  • GMiS 2021 Virtual Conference

    Mon, Oct 11, 2021

    Viterbi School of Engineering Career Connections

    Receptions & Special Events

    The virtual Great Minds in STEM (GMiS) 2021 Conference is scheduled for October 11-22, 2021.

    Many of GMiS's long-standing sponsors will be participating in the virtual two-day Career Fair, including Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Shell Oil, Texas Instruments, Chevron, Cummins, Google, JP Morgan Chase - to name a few!

    At last year's GMiS Conference, sponsors from major corporations and agencies made hundreds of offers for internships and full-time employment.

    The All-Access Student Pass is being offered at a discounted rate of $99 until Aug. 31! (Regular rate is $125.) Students will enjoy 14-days of programming, including the two-day Career Fair, Hospitality Suites, Research Poster Competition, College Bowl, Speed Networking Sessions, webinars, and Awards Shows.
    Registration is now open for the GMiS Research Poster Competition for showcasing students' scholarly work and win top $$ awards.
    The GMiS College Bowl #22 Competition invites students to participate in sponsor-coached teams and compete for top $$ prizes. A limited # of seats are available, so register early.

    To register for the Conference and for a complete agenda, please visit www.gmisconference.org.

    GMiS is offering you the following incentives:

    Take advantage of the $99 discounted All-Access Pass available until August 31st.
    Ten complimentary All-Access Student Passes. Students can use the code 21USCSTU to register for free by September 15th.
    Three reserved GMiS College Bowl Competition slots for USC students.
    A Group Discount: purchase 8 registrations, get 2 additional free.

  • Repeating EventKCLC Drop-In Hours

    Mon, Oct 11, 2021 @ 01:00 PM - 03:00 PM

    Information Technology Program (ITP)

    Workshops & Infosessions

    Hello Trojans!
    Are you looking for assistance on returning to campus, improving their time management skills, and alleviating stress? Please come to our workshops and Drop-in hours hosted by the USC Kortschak Center for Learning and Creativity. No reservation or appointment is required for our workshops and drop-ins.

    KCLC will be hosting Drop-in Hours and Skill Building for Success Workshops on Zoom with a weekly theme of time management, reading strategies, stress management or test-taking. The workshops will be interactive with great tips and resources.

    Drop-in hours are available for undergraduate or graduate students to meet with an academic coach without needing to make a reservation. These sessions may be held in a group setting, dependent upon staffing availability and demand.

    For more information, see the attached flyers with dates, times, and Zoom links.

    If you are interested in learning more about weekly academic coaching, email us at kortschakcenter@usc.edu for additional information.

    KCLC will have more events throughout the semester, and you can check out the most up to date workshop and drop-in schedule on their website https://kortschakcenter.usc.edu/events/

    Talk Title: A novel multiphysics coupled framework to model fluid flow, solute transport, and reservoir geomechanics in fractured porous media

    Abstract: Join Zoom Meeting

    Meeting ID: 992 8603 9027
    Passcode: 669210

    Despite recent advances in modeling flow and geomechanics coupling, a holistic multiphysics approach to capturing the coupling synergy between fluid flow, injectant transport, induced stresses, and fracture mechanics is lacking. There is a growing interest in developing an integrated multiphysics simulator to investigate physical processes during fluid injection into a fractured reservoir, i.e. injection-induced deformation and stresses, dissolution and spreading of the injected fluid, and convective instabilities originating from the contrast in injected and resident fluid properties, e.g. viscous fingering.

    I develop a holistic computational modeling framework that couples reservoir geomechanics, fluid flow, solvent transport, and fracture dynamics. The first objective is to quantitatively characterize the effect of geomechanical coupling on key macroscopic transport phenomena such as spreading, mixing, and viscous fingering. The second objective is to probe the impact of poroelasticity on the temporal and spatial evolution of embedded fracture networks in terms of induced permeability, dynamic propagation, and fracture interactions. The third objective is to investigate how flow-transport coupling and fracture dynamics modulate the stress state and geomechanical stability of stress-sensitive subsurface formations.

    The findings of this study are relevant in many practical applications such as waste disposal, carbon dioxide sequestration, contaminant transport, enhanced oil recovery, and tracer surveillance.
